I'm getting this error when executing the next simple trigger
CREATE OR REPLACE
TRIGGER PASACOLOR
BEFORE INSERT OR UPDATE OF COLOR ON VENTAS
BEGIN
:NEW.COLOR := UPPER(:NEW.COLOR);
END PASACOLOR;

you need to add FOR EACH ROW
CREATE OR REPLACE TRIGGER PASACOLOR
BEFORE INSERT OR UPDATE OF COLOR ON VENTAS
REFERENCING OLD AS OLD NEW AS NEW
FOR EACH ROW 
BEGIN
:NEW.COLOR := UPPER(:NEW.COLOR);
END PASACOLOR;
